Hello! I hope you're having a great day! We're almost at the close of February, which means spring is coming soon. What that has to do with what I want to share with you today, I'm not sure, but I'm pretty excited for the end of winter and the beginning of spring and fairer weather.
If you're into nail polish at all, you've most likely heard about Zoya's Naked Manicure system. It is a collection of special sheer polishes that help improve the look of damaged/discolored nails while still looking natural and unpolished. It's a great option for people who are trying to transition from wearing gel/acrylic nails and want to cover up any damage or for people who can't wear nail polish but who still want a well-groomed look. I avoided purchasing anything from this collection for a long time since, if I'm going to polish my nails, I much prefer to use color, but there's so much buzz surrounding it, that I finally caved in. Plus, I read that you can use the different color correctors/perfectors to tweak other polishes if you layer them.
There are a couple different ways you can purchase the polishes in this collection, so there are options for every price level: you can purchase full sizes individually, a Women's Starter Kit (which has four full size polishes), a Men's Starter Kit (which has three full sizes), the Mini Professional Kit (which has all nine polishes in mini size), or the Professional Kit (which has all nine polishes in full size). I went with the Mini Professional Kit since I didn't want to invest $98 (the price of the Professional Kit) in a system I was merely testing out, but I also wanted to be able to try all nine polishes.
Overall, I am very pleased with this system. It delivers on its promise to give you a natural looking manicure; natural to the point that people won't even know you're wearing any polish and will assume your nails just look that good. I can't say if the promise of long term benefits holds true since I haven't used this set for that long, but I'm so happy with the immediate results that anything else is merely a bonus feature. I also really like the flexibility of this kit; the polishes all layer well with each other, so there are a ton of different color combinations that can be created. Again, if you're interested at all in trying this system, try to take advantage of the deal Zoya has going on right now; if you're reading this after the deal has expired and you have to pay the full $35, I still say go for it!
Thanks for reading! <3
